Selected books are: Unknown Caller by Debra Spark (Fiction) - a gorgeously written novel about a married couple, an unpredictable ex-wife, and a recently discovered daughter, and The Moth: 50 True Stories (Nonfiction) - a series of stories that span the breadth of human experience, originally presented live without notes. (Many of you may be fans of The Moth Radio Hour on NPR.) Visit our Read ME display in the Library...and start reading!
